Profile Summary

Dr. Emmett Ientilucci is an assistant professor in RIT’s Digital Imaging and Remote Sensing (DIRS) group. He has degrees in optics and imaging science. Prior to his faculty position, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for the Intelligence Community. He has performed research in Low-Light-Level modeling, LiDAR and physics-based target modeling, hyperspectral sub-pixel detection algorithms, and published on approaches to geometric and stochastic spectral target detection and modeling, spectral endmember selection, spectral variability, atmospheric and radiative transfer modeling, scattering from small particles, remote sensing instrumentation, sensor calibration, atmospheric compensation, and spectral BRDF measurements and modeling.

Dr. Ientilucci has taught courses and labs in radiometry, remote sensing, spectral image analysis, geometrical optics, photo science, dimensional metrology, measurement and analysis, and computer techniques for technicians. He has managed teams of graduate students in imaging and computer science as it relates to government and commercial contracts. He has participated in thesis advisement for 54 undergraduate and graduate imaging science students and has 67 publications in the fields of imaging and remote sensing. He has served as referee on 13 scientific journals including being an Associate Editor for a special issue of Optical Engineering. He has given 78 presentations 10 of which were invited talks.

He has designed and executed numerous, large scale, aerial data collection campaigns. He has written proposals valued at $3.1 million which has resulted in more than $1.8 million in research related funding, been a program reviewer for NASA, the Department of Defense (DOD), and is Chair for the SPIE Imaging Spectrometry Conference, the WNY Geoscience & Remote Sensing Society, and the STRATUS UAS conference. He is currently working on a text book entitled, “Radiometry and Radiation Propagation” with Oxford University Press.
